Arataki Itto in Genshin Impact: Release date, banner, abilities, more
Arataki Itto has finally been officially revealed in Genshin Impact. Here’s what we know about Kujou Sara’s Oni-masked rival so far, including his abilities, skills, voice actor and release date.
The Inazuma expansion for Genshin Impact is still rolling on, but miHoYo has now released official details for Arataki Itto — the game’s deputy of the Arataki Gang. Known for his incredible strength, this is all thanks to the Oni blood that runs through his veins.
The upcoming Geo character has one goal in mind: Taking down bitter rival Kujou Sara and reclaiming his vision. Here’s what we know about the billboard-loving Oni character set to join Genshin Impact soon.

Itto will finally be released in the second phase of Genshin Impact update 2.3, which is expected to drop on December 14, 2021.
The new Geo character is “The First and Greatest Head of the Arataki Gang,” which helps stop any troublemakers from causing harm in the Inazuma region.

While Itto’s appearance may look menacing at first, his demeanor is described as caring and kindhearted. He is incredibly competitive and often enjoys setting up scenarios where he can prove his skills. Developers miHoYo describe him as “fast as the wind and mighty as thunder, he is an intrepid man with Oni blood running through his veins.”
Itto’s abilities have now made it to the public sphere, which has given players a sneak peek at his overall playstyle.
His Elemental Skill (Masatsu Zetsugi: Akaushi Burst!) hurls out a raging bull that deals Geo damage to enemies hit. Once the bull has finished charging, it will stay on the battlefield and taunt nearby enemies. He also gains one stack of Superlative Superstrength – a passive that enables him to unleash empowered attacks.
Lastly, his Elemental Burst (Royal Descent: Behold, Itto the Evil!) unleashes a devastating flurry of Geo hits that deal damage based on his DEF. While in this state, Itto gains increased attack speed, at the cost of his defensive resistances. It can be canceled by swapping Itto off-field.
The Geo user’s main weapon is a Claymore. Given the Arataki’s big personality and the descriptions of him as an Oni of sorts, this does fit the bill.

However, whether he will receive a special weapon as a five-star, or will have to settle for something like a Wolf’s Gravestone as a four-star, remains to be seen.
While a full trailer will launch once Itto finally hits live servers, miHoYo has released an Itto character teaser on December 8 to whet Genshin Impact players’ appetites.
It dives into a play featuring Itto and the Arataki Gang, with the five-star Geo character taking center stage — before a run-in with the Tenryou Commission.
Itto’s main plot point right now is that he has a lot of beef with Kujou Sara, who was on the frontlines for the Raiden Shogun’s Vision Hunt Decree.
Across a bunch of bulletin boards in Inazuma, he can be seen challenging Sara after the leader reportedly stole his vision and destroyed it during the Decree. He is waiting for her to finally take him up on his many fight offers, which she has knocked back in various different ways.

The leader also is keen to stop any troublemakers that otherwise upset the peace, with the deputy of the Arataki Gang asking people to report any bad behavior. “If you come across any inappropriate behavior on the part of our boss, Arataki Itto, please contact me immediately. ”
The recent Special Program gave us an in-depth look at Itto’s voice actors, though information surrounding the character’s Chinese voice actor is yet to be revealed.
